ISLAMABAD: Media Adviser to the President Farahnaz Ispahani, who is also the wife of Pakistan’s Ambassador to the US Husain Haqqani, said on Monday that the pair is ready to face legal action regarding the memo controversy.

Talking to the media outside the Supreme Court, Ispahani raised doubts over the credibility of the Pakistani American businessman Mansoor Ijaz who claims that Haqqani asked him to deliver the memo to Adm Mike Mullen in May this year.

“He is a foreign national who is blaming us and attacking Pakistan’s democracy,” Ispahani told reporters outside the apex court building in Islamabad.

She denied the allegations regarding the controversial memo and said the pair is ready for Pakistani and American courts because they have nothing to hide.

“I am a worker of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP),” she said. “When the president and prime minister guide us to take a legal option, we will do so,” she added.

She also said that if the top leadership of her party permits it, the pair will take Ijaz to court for libel.
